    Oisin - to clarify the date wheel on the new models, is same as dial colour(s) (not black). Eg Blue has blue date wheel.
    Its a really excellent new design detail.

    Lovely watch 'Hotel' and yes the white face can work (sporty) - I tend to have a preference for 'darker' dials just for visibility (reading time). The second picture the watch does look 'unbuckled'?
    This is the 41/2mm and why I'm happy to try the 39mm model, as the End Case lugs should not over hang the wrist (imho). But each to there own, some like a close fit whilst others prefer a loose 'bracelet' freestyle fit. However, a down side to a loose fitting is generally the watch receives more incidental damage.

    I'm a sucker for cushion cases, myself. But I hate the numerals. Soooo painfully retro-gimmicky.

    I have no problem with the font used for the numerals, as the GO Senator Sixties range is a direct homage to the GDR-era Glashutte watches, and the font is a carry over from those pieces.

    The Senator Sixties pieces I've found to look much better in pictures than in the steel, unfortunately.

    I agree, numerals are great here.

    I also agree on cushion cases - love them when they're nicely shaped and well finished

    I have decided I think i'll go with the Cartier Santos 100 XL in silver. I tried on the JLC reverso in the store and it was so boring compare to the Cartier. I think santos will look perfect with my suits [​IMG]
